As with ''VideoGame/OverBlood'' and ''VideoGame/BlueStinger'', there's a good chance (but not always) you know of this game from Game Informer's [[LetsPlay Super Replay]].

* MacGuffinGirl: Lilia mostly just stands around in the first game. Her plot significance comes from the fact that she carries the Virus Program.

Added DiffLines:

* EeriePaleSkinnedBrunette: Birdman, [[AxCrazy full stop]], being voice by Creator/TakehitoKoyasu doesn't hurt either.


Added DiffLines:

* MismatchedEyes: Birdman has them.

* AbstractApotheosis: Based on his claim in ''Galerians: Ash'', [[spoiler:Rion became the embodiment of the Virus Program after being brought back from the dead.]]



* ComputerVirus: Once Dr. Steiner and Dr. Pascalle realized Dorothy was out of control, they developed a failsafe program to destroy her -- the Virus Program. They wrote the Virus Program into the brain of Lilia, Dr. Pascalle's daughter. Rion has a program to ''activate'' the Virus Program in his head, so the two must be united in order to destroy Dorothhy.



* MadDoctor: Dr. Lem. Arguably, Dr. Steiner and Dr. Pascalle as well.

to:

* MacGuffinGirl: Lilia mostly just stands around in the first game. Her plot significance comes from the fact that she carries the Virus Program.
* MadDoctor: Dr. Lem. Arguably, Dr. Steiner Lem is completely sold on Dorothy's plan to become the "New Master of Creation," and Dr. Pascalle as well.his contribution to the cause involves lots of human experimentation.



* OnlyICanKillHim: Apparently only a Child of Dorothy can kill another Child of Dorothy.
* OverlordJr: Ash.

to:

* OnlyICanKillHim: Apparently According to Rion, only a Child of Dorothy can kill another Child of Dorothy.
Dorothy. Considering the opposition is psychic, [[spoiler:or non-corporeal, and/or hangs out in a radiation-riddled derelict power plant,]] he's probably right.
* OverdrawnAtTheBloodBank: The impressive fountains of blood generated by victims of Rion's [[YourHeadAsplode head-explody mode]].
* OverlordJr: Ash.Ash is Dorothy's progeny and takes her place as BigBad in ''Galerians: Ash''.



* SoLastSeason: The drug Skip changes functions from the first game to the second. In the first game, Skip is a temporary PowerUp that boosts Rion's psychic power level until his health goes critical. In ''Galerians: Ash'', a Skip tablet is RareCandy -- it raises the power level of one of Rion's abilities permanently. They're often given out as reward for defeating a boss.



* TomatoInTheMirror: Rion is [[spoiler:a Galerian created by Dorothy]]. Also, in the second game, there is [[spoiler:Ash]].
* [[TurnedAgainstTheirMasters Turned Against Her Masters]]: Dorothy.
* {{Tykebomb}}: All of the Galerians.

to:

* TomatoInTheMirror: This trope is the ''Galerians'' series' big twist of choice.
** In ''Galerians'', [[spoiler:Rion isn't the real Rion. The real
Rion is [[spoiler:a dead, and the protagonist is a Galerian clone of Rion Steiner created by Dorothy]]. Also, in to lure Lilia out of hiding.]]
** In ''Galerians: Ash'', [[spoiler:Ash is
the second game, there is [[spoiler:Ash]].
* [[TurnedAgainstTheirMasters Turned Against Her Masters]]: Dorothy.
only Last Galerian. The other three are split personalities Ash manifested due to Dorothy's abuse and neglect.]]
* {{Tykebomb}}: All The Galerians are a group of the Galerians.DesignerBabies who live in fear of their "mother", and will do ''anything'' she orders.



* UnwinnableByDesign: All drugs in the game are finite, so if you've used up all the available Delmetor in a stage and are close to short circuiting, you are very screwed indeed.

to:

* UnwinnableByDesign: All It may not be immediately evident, but ''Galerians'' does '''not''' want to you kill every mook you come across. By the time you realize that the supply of drugs is finite but the [[RespawningEnemies enemies respawn indefinitely]], you might already be stuck. The game does have an EmergencyWeapon, and shorting is a poor fallback since it drains Rion's health. It probably won't work out in the game are finite, so if you've used up all player's favor.
* UterineReplicator: In Mushroom Tower, Rion finds
the available Delmetor devices in a stage and are close to short circuiting, you are very screwed indeed.which the Galerians were created. [[spoiler:Including one for himself.]]



* VoiceWithAnInternetConnection: Lilia to Rion in the sequel.
* WhiteHairBlackHeart: Ash

to:

* VoiceWithAnInternetConnection: Lilia serves as remote mission control to Rion in the sequel.
''Galerians: Ash''.
* WhiteHairBlackHeart: AshAsh is a pretty classic [[{{Bishounen}} pretty boy]] baddie.



* YouAreTheTranslatedForeignWord: Somewhat averted in that it's never explicitly mentioned ingame and the term itself is more of a vague prisoner metaphor, but the term 'Galerian' seems to be a corruption of the French word '[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Galley_slave galérien,]]' which translates to 'galley slave,' a criminal or prisoner of war forced to row in galleys.
* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: [[spoiler:Ash's murder of Parano.]]
* YouShallNotPass: [[spoiler:Cas' sacrifice.]]
* YouWakeUpInARoom
* YourHeadAsplode: You must take pills in order to curb your PsychicPowers. If you don't, your player character's brainwaves will pop the heads of any mooks he walks past, as his health slowly drains away.

* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: [[spoiler:Ash's murder of Parano.Parano repeatedly loses to Rion, so [[spoiler: Ash shoots him in the head. When Parano re-manifests before the final boss fight, he returns the favor to Ash.]]
* YouShallNotPass: [[spoiler:Cas' sacrifice.In a moment of considerable badassery, Cas uses explosives to take out a bunch of Ash's forces and close a security breach, [[spoiler:but sacrifices herself in the process.]]
* YouWakeUpInARoom
YouWakeUpInARoom: How it all begins. The player knows exactly as much about Rion as Rion knows about himself -- which is nothing.
* YourHeadAsplode: You must take pills in order to curb your PsychicPowers. If you don't, your player character's When Rion loses control of his powers, his brainwaves will pop the heads of any mooks he walks past, as in his vicinity. The caveat is that Rion's health slowly drains away.away in this state.

* IdentityAmnesia: Rion has no memories of his life before waking up in the hospital. He wouldn't know his own name if other people hadn't told him. [[spoiler:The twist he's not really an amnesiac, but rather a [[LossOfIdentity blank slate]] who spends the game "becoming Rion.
